Here’s the media release:
FIVE MORE KIWI CELEBRITIES PREPARE FOR CAMP LIFE ON CELEBRITY TREASURE ISLAND
Brynley Stent, Candy Lane, Casey Frank, Joe Naufahu and Tegan Yorwarth were today announced as the next group of celebrity castaways trading the comforts of home for the scarcities of camp life, joining the impressive line-up of contestants on TVNZ 2’s upcoming Celebrity Treasure Island.
For actor, comedian and writer Brynley Stent, taking part in Celebrity Treasure Island is about more than just a game, having lost her mother to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma she’s ready to play for the ultimate prize in the name of her charity, Leukaemia & Blood Cancer NZ.
Never one to turn down a challenge, Kiwi dancing legend Candy Lane hopes to quick step her way to the final, playing for Endometriosis NZ, a charity to which she has a meaningful family connection.
This will be a whole new ball game for former Breaker and Tall Black star, Casey Frank but he’s got the frame of mind that if it’s worth playing, it’s worth winning, and all to make a difference for his chosen charity, Kids Can.
Best known for his role as Dothraki war lord on Game of Thrones, actor and rugby player Joe Naufahu is going into battle with the hope of bringing home the treasure for a charity close to his family, Breast Cancer New Zealand.
Award-winning Mai Morning Crew host, Tegan Yorwarth has had a bit of a prep talk with her military Dad, and is now heading North to support her charity The Period Place, armed with the attitude ‘let’s just relax, enjoy it, and go hard’.
Tegan, Joe, Casey, Candy and Brynley join Kimberley Crossman, Tammy Davis, JJ Fong, Anna Simcic, Lance Savali, Angela Bloomfield, Buck Shelford, Chris Parker, Lana Searle, Joe Daymond and Jess Tyson, who have already been announced this week.
Celebrity Treasure Island will premiere on TVNZ 2 this September.
The next group of celebrity castaways will be announced on Sunday.
Celebrity Treasure Island is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production New Zealand.
